Good Night Lotion – For Healthy Sleep and Magnesium

2009 customer reviews
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.

    My family and I really like the good night lotion. We use it when my son has growing pains or when I experience restless leg syndrome and we notice a difference within minutes.

  2. Laurie (verified owner)

    I love this product! It helps with constipation, muscle soreness and sleep. I make sure I alway have a container around.

  3. Zoe Harmon (verified owner)

    We love the good night lotion!! I find it helps me a lot with restless legs from pregnancy too.

  4. Ally (verified owner)

    Definitely a must have staple for anyone struggling trying to get quality sleep. I as a mother of three young girls we all use this product almost every night.
    Has a lovely smell & great texture, almost liked a whipped soufflé . Not much product is needed to be placed on the bottom of your feet.
    A little goes a long way.
    Highly recommend this product for you, your family, or any of your loved ones.

    My 7-year-old daughter has cerebral palsy and with that comes poor motility for many kids. Doctors wanted her on daily miralax along with ex-lax. I was tired of trying to push these two products on my child. We started using good night lotion every so often and anytime I would apply it to her abdomen she would poop within the following hours. It’s much simpler than trying to get her to drink lots of fluid to take miralax and better for her body.

  6. Dani (verified owner)

    Must have for sleep and a great way to get magnesium topically for littles! We’ve used this for years and love it!

  7. Leah (verified owner)

    This product is a must have in our house. We use it every single night with the vitamin d rub. It has especially helped during my two recent pregnancies with restless legs at night. Whenever I skip a day putting the good night rub on my legs, I notice a difference as I am waking up with restless legs at night! This stuff is amazing!

  8. Natalie Bolognino (verified owner)

    This magnesium lotion is my favorite product from earthly!! I can not say enough good things about it! I use it on my kids after their bath and they sleep amazingly! I use it on my 4 year old when he gets growing pains and it works! I have had a few surgeries on my foot from a car accident and when it gets tight I use this and it helps right away! My mother in law gets restless legs and used this and it works so she can sleep thru the night!! Leg cramps=this is your answer! Dont question buying this! We all need extra magnesium!!

    This is an amazing lotion for me and my baby! Every night before bed, it put a pea size about of this lotion on my baby’s feet. She calms down and sleeps 12 hours through the night. I put it on my feet when I can’t sleep and it helps me relax. I love that there aren’t strong scents and it is safe for our sensitive skin.

  11. Susan mills (verified owner)

    Love this product! My son doesn’t sleep well and he is a sleep walker usually every night. Since using this he has been able to sleep in his bed without getting up through the night as often. So glad we tried this!

  12. Melody Moore (verified owner)

    This is my favorite product so far! It has a calming scent that is not overpowering. I use it on my neck to help me relax at night, and I notice a definite difference if I forget! My only critique (and it’s not even a big deal) is that it is a little lumpy. Other than that, it is just wonderful!

  13. Cherie (verified owner)

    I love you good night cream. I have cramping due to Parkinson’s disease and I use this cream and I get a good nights sleep. And the scent is so nice.

  14. Brenna Jo Whitson (verified owner)

    Yes! This stuff is amazing and my kids know to ask for it (especially when they are having a hard time falling asleep). Not only does it help calm them almost immediately, but I know it’s good for them, as magnesium is one mineral we are almost always deficient in!

  15. gmosaunders (verified owner)

    I bought this magnesium lotion twice, the unscented sensitive lotion and the lavender lotion. It didn’t seem to truly help my daughter sleep well despite taking all precautions to ensure her having a good night’s rest. We started using the lotion when she was 5 months old and stopped using it when she turned 20 months old. The lotion lasted us a while so it’s well worth the money! The lavender was a bit chunky even though I mixed it more upon arrival. I’ve used this lotion and it works well for leg cramps while I’m pregnant. If anything I’d buy it again for that purpose!

  16. Amber Ramos (verified owner)

    My daughter (13) uses this every night. She rubs it on her tummy and her calves, then she reads in bed till sleepy and sleeps so well. She used to be very restless, every little noise would keep her up or wondering what everyone else was doing, she’s the baby of the house. It helps her relax and it’s so good for her! My husband and I will use it when it’s a particularly stressful season along with cocoa calm to help us relax. Magnesium lotion was the first thing I ever bought from Earthley when we started our natural health journey 4 years ago. I love Earthley products!!

  17. Mary

    I can tell if I’ve missed a night of using this. It really helps me fall and stay asleep. The scent is calming and familiar. I have noticed a decrease in how often I get migraines too, which was not something I had expected.

  18. Angela Zickafoose (verified owner)

    This lotion is amazing. It is especially helpful to my girls when they are in Cross Country season. They rub it all over their legs but especially concentrate on areas of pain or soreness and bellies before bed and it significantly reduces muscle soreness and cramping. My son also uses it after a hard workout in the gym, and notices a huge difference. I love it for my restless legs at night. Works wonders for reducing soreness, cramps and gives a great night sleep. Highly recommend!

  19. Naomi Dimambro (verified owner)

    We have been using Good Night Lotion every night during our bedtime routine for our 3 and 5 year old daughters. It helps they stay asleep on top of the benefits of the magnesium absorbing into the skin. We’re on our second container, and will be buying more!

  20. Gisnel (verified owner)

    This has helped me tremendously. I was skeptical at first but I went ahead and bought it when I started experiencing mild numbness and tingling in my legs from neuropathy. In a matter of minutes after rubbing, I feel totally normal. My husband loves it also. We moved recently and he felt so tired after the move, his feet and back were hurting. I used the goodnight lotion on his feet, massaged for roughly 15 minutes. Before he could say thanks, he was knocked out. Next evening he asked for another foot rub with the goodnight lotion , said it felt so good. I use it for my 20 month old also who use to be so restless during sleep. Let me tell you, this stuff works
