Earthley Awards Earthley Awards


Did you know that magnesium performs over 300 essential functions in your body – including promoting healthy sleep, natural detox, healthy blood sugar levels, and gut health?  Many forms of magnesium supplements either cause cramping/stomach upset (oral options) or are itchy (sprays).  But not ours!

We’ve blended pure magnesium chloride with nourishing oils and butters that moisturize your skin while the magnesium absorbs quickly.  The result is healthy skin and a healthy body!

Formulated by an herbalist and mother of 6 and trusted by thousands of happy customers, Good Night Lotion is safe for the whole family.  Made with the cleanest, most recognizable ingredients, like apricot oil, mango butter, and plant-based candelilla wax, with absolutely no compromises.

Take your family’s health into your own hands and enjoy the benefits of magnesium immediately, in an easy-to-use lotion — 100 mg magnesium per teaspoon!  Choose original (with lavender essential oil), sensitive (no essential oil), or limited-edition Blue Bliss (lavender, sandalwood, and blue tansy essential oils).

Key Ingredients:

  • Magnesium Chloride Flakes – promotes sleep and detox
  • Apricot Oil – rich in vitamin E, anti-inflammatory, soothes skin
  • Mango Butter – anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, nourishes skin
  • Shea Butter – anti-inflammatory, rich in vitamin A
  • Lavender Essential Oil – calming, anti-anxiety
  • Candelilla Wax – nourishes skin, hydrates skin

ABSOLUTELY NO parabens, phthalates, fragrance, preservatives, allergens (corn, soy, gluten, dairy, nuts), or any junk!

*Tested for heavy metals by third-party labs to ensure compliance with strict safety standards.*

Did you know that approximately 80% of the population is deficient in magnesium?

It’s used for over 300 functions in our bodies, and we burn through it faster in times of stress.  Even more importantly, it’s a co-factor for the absorption and use of other key nutrients, like vitamin D.  Getting enough magnesium is critically important to health!

Some signs you might not get enough:

  • Struggle to fall or stay asleep
  • Occasional constipation
  • Feeling anxious/wired
  • Lack of appetite
  • Muscle soreness/cramps
  • Metabolic issues

Our Good Night Lotion is rich in natural magnesium chloride and blended with skin-nourishing oils.  This means it’s not itchy like sprays, and doesn’t cause digestive upset like pills.  It’s also very easy to use — simply rub it into belly or legs approximately 15 minutes before sleep.  There are approximately 100 mg of magnesium per teaspoon of lotion, so use the amount that meets your needs!

Our lotion is safe for all ages.  Choose original (with lavender essential oil for added benefits) or sensitive (without essential oils/unscented for those who are allergic to lavender or prefer unscented products). Shelf life of 1 year.

Supplement Facts:

100 mg of magnesium per 1 tsp of lotion.

It is safe to use more depending on your needs, and to apply at other times of day.  Apply to the affected area for sore muscles or occasional headache.


Shelf life: 1 year. Safe for all ages. Safe while pregnant or breastfeeding. Using too much may cause temporary diarrhea, but will not cause any long-term or serious issues. If you notice loose stools, use less.

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA, and this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure anything.


Q: Can I use more than a pea-sized amount?

A: Yes!  Every person’s needs differ, so you can use more or less than the suggested amount.  If you still struggle to sleep or experience a restless feeling, use more.

Q: What are these little white balls in it?  How do I get rid of them?

A: These are stearic acid, a naturally-occurring fatty acid in shea and mango butters.  When the lotion melts in transit or in a bathroom and cools slowly, the stearic acid separates from the other oils and hardens as these little balls.  Your lotion is still fine!  If you don’t like the texture, you can remelt it, stir, and put it in the freezer to cool quickly.

Q: How do I use this for occasional constipation?

A: Rub a small amount (start with pea-sized but use more if needed) on your lower abdomen.  For a child, do the “L” massage – up the left side, across, and down the right side.

Q: Why magnesium chloride instead of another form?

A: Magnesium chloride is the best “general” form and well absorbed topically.  Other forms are beneficial for different reasons, but if you’re overwhelmed by research, this is a great place to start.

Q: Can I experience any side effects from this?

A: Rarely, someone can have itchy skin or slight diarrhea, but this isn’t common.  Use less in future applications.

Q: I'm pregnant.  Can I rub this on my belly?

A: Absolutely!  Many women need extra magnesium while pregnant because their bodies are doing so much.  It can help you get a good night’s sleep.

Q: If I want to use this during the day for sore muscles or another need, will it make me fall asleep?

A: Almost certainly not.  It helps muscles relax and allows your body to calm for sleep, but it doesn’t induce drowsiness.  You can use it whenever needed.


Q: My kids are more wired after use rather than sleepy.  What happened?!

A: On rare occasions, lavender has the opposite effect on people, causing them to get energy instead of calming down!  We suggest trying the sensitive version instead.

  1. Rachel (verified owner)

    This lotion is amazing!! My husband and I both sleep like babies if we use it. I will say, it does cause me to have some crazy dreams But I always wake up feeling well rested. The instructions say to use a pea sized amount for a child, and a little bit more for an adult, but a pea size works great for us. This has worked better than any melatonin supplement I’ve taken for sleep, and if I put it on in the evening it helps me wind down for the night much more easily.

  2. April Strepko (verified owner)

    I use this when my kids get leg cramps. It takes them away and they can sleep peacefully.

  3. Hanna (verified owner)

    I ordered the lotion for my husband who has been struggling falling asleep. He noticed the improvement after the first couple of nights putting the magnesium lotion. It is unbelievable but it really seems to work. The smell is also very soothing and the texture is smooth and silky.

  4. Stefanie Bush (verified owner)

    We have used good night lotion both with lavender and without for nearly four years now! I originally bought it for myself, but my oldest daughter has had nighttime growing pains on and of throughout that time and we figured out that applying this on her knees and wherever else is bothering her takes them away! She keeps one by her bedside and no longer wakes me up to help her because she knows applying this will take her pains away!! So thankful for this product.

  5. Kara (verified owner)

    Love this product. I use it every night. It helps with pain in my back and helps me sleep. I don’t miss a night using it! Highly recommend!

  6. Jennifer Lichter (verified owner)

    I LOVE this lotion!! I use it on my kids feet/legs at night. If they’re having tummy troubles we rub a little on their tummies. I also use it for myself for the same reasons! It helps with sleep and if I’m having any sort of tummy troubles, they’re taken care of by the next day! This is a staple in our home!

  7. Missy (verified owner)

    This is my favorite Earthley product, which I won’t go without. I apply a pea-size amount before bed and sleep much deeper. I’ve bought it for my family and they’ve noticed a difference in their sleep too.
    I also use it on any muscle aches and it works to relieve pain.

  8. Robyne (verified owner)

    This is one of my top 3 products! I use it daily (nightly) and I sleep so good! I typically sleep well for the most part, but since using the Good Night Lotion I sleep much better. The formula smells good and feels good.

  9. Laya (verified owner)

    We love the good night lotion in our home. We all use it before bedtime. Mom, dad, and toddlers aged 3 and 18 months. It helps us sleep more soundly and toddlers seem to sleep better as well.

  10. Lauren Hogenson (verified owner)

    The whole family uses this to promote good sleep. I much prefer the safety of this over any other product marketed for sleep/magnesium on the market as I’m very careful what I incorporate into my kids routine (4 year old and almost 2 year old). It’s been great for us!

  11. Kelly Knopf (verified owner)

    This stuff is magical. I have used it for a whirl but during my pregnancy I have noticed the most benefits. I get a lot of restless legs in late pregnancy. Good night lotion makes a noticeable difference in settling them. I’m so thankful for it! Get ya some!!

  12. Maria Tumbusch (verified owner)

    I LOVE this product!
    Have a sore muscle? Massage this into it for a few minutes. It does help to ease the pain, and sometimes take it away completely!
    Low on magnesium? Most of us are.
    I like to put this on my feet at night before bed.
    Helping to up my magnesium and get better quality sleep!
    I gave it 4 stars because it is in a plastic container 🙁 can’t stand that nasty stuff. Get rid of the plastic please!
    Also, this is just a personal preference, but I think this product would be great in a whipped form 🙂

  13. Juli (verified owner)

    We LOVE this lotion! It is so gentle(didn’t cause the intense itching like other brands). My husband would rub our kids feet and they’d fall asleep so much faster. The endless bedtime battles were won with this lotion. We have recommended this to every parent that has complained about their bedtime routine. I’ve bought several jars for other moms and have often just given mine away and bought more. I love this stuff! If you are on the fence- buy it! You won’t regret it. Most Americans are deficient in magnesium and this is such an easy and relaxing way to put some into your body! Don’t delay, get some!

  14. Kayla

    I really like the magnesium lotion. It’s calming and subtle, yet makes a difference. When I run out I am replacing it.

  15. Amber (verified owner)

    I LOVE this magnesium lotion! My family all uses it to help us fall asleep & stay asleep at night. I’ve never taken magnesium before so I was a little hesitant, but it works so well! This is one I’ll always have on hand.

  16. Courtney Swann (verified owner)

    This goodnight lotion has helped my youngest sleep better at night he has a little restless leg and this is what his physician suggested we try, it’s been wonderful and I am thankful for the relief it has given him!!

  17. Deborah Bakanovic (verified owner)

    I became an insomniac when I started menopause and this lotion is great! It helps me fall asleep and stay asleep without any of the groggy side effects that most sleepy meds cause. Will definitely continue using this! Love it!

  18. Tiffany Crain (verified owner)

    I was skeptical about this because there is so much out there that doesn’t work! BUT!! This stuff is amazing and my whole family loves it. Such a good night sleep and wake up feeling refreshed!

  19. Aubrie Azar

    The good night lotion is absolutely amazing for everyone in the family! It works well on my toddlers, but it also works great on me and my husband! I sleep so soundly when I use this before bed!

  20. Maja (verified owner)

    I got this lotion for the magnesium but by day 3 of using this on my children and myself, every one of us was sleeping longer, more soundly and fall asleep much faster. Before I stater using this on my toddler, it took me an hour of butt patting to get him to sleep. He’s asleep within 15 minutes if we apply this lotion.
