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.

    I ordered the Good Night lotion – sensitive and it is life changing. My fiancé and I both have been putting it on every night for the last week and have not experienced this quality of sleep ever. It doesn’t make me groggy in the morning when waking up which is a huge plus. Before using this I was waking up multiple times at night, tossing and turning. Now, about 30-45 minutes after I put on the lotion I start to get sleepy and stay asleep.

    We just received this product and it worked!!!

  3. renee batongtong

    We love this product we use the sensitive for my daughter who has eczema and we use the other one the red label for the older kids! I didn’t know about the sensitive one, so I bought the red label first but once I found out that there was a sensitive product we had to buy it! It really does help make you fall asleep and stay asleep !!
    Thank you Earthley !!

  4. Herbalmama714

    We used this Magnesium lotion daily. It helps both my kids (age 1&3) and myself have a better nights rest! I’d love to give it a 5 star rating but we have had some issues with getting some that has a bit of grit to it. It eventually rubs in after you apply and massage into the skin but it isn’t something we have enjoyed. Other than that it works wonders and I have noticed a difference it makes when applying.

  5. Courtney L. (verified owner)

    This is the first time I have used the magnesium lotion and I appreciate how easy it is to apply. It is great to know that I can receive the benefits of magnesium without needing to take a capsule supplement. I have put it on my one year old child in hopes that it would help her to sleep better at night, but I am not sure it helps in that way.

  6. Tracy Vert (verified owner)

    I love how this is safe for the whole family. We love it!!

  7. Velvet

    This stuff works! If you get leg cramps at night or struggle with falling asleep, this product might help you. This lotion helped me with leg cramps during pregnancy

  8. Teresa Marbut (verified owner)

    I have repurchased this many times. It really helps me to relax and sleep better. I wouldn’t be without it.

  9. Shawna

    This lotion is absolutely amazing! It’s a must have in my house. Not only does it help me relax, it also helps my toddler sleep through the night. The texture takes some getting used to but it rubs out and is smooth. I adore it.

  10. Jaqueline (verified owner)

    Loveeee this stuff! I use it at night on my stomach mostly. But helps so much when I have restless legs!

  11. Jennifer Sawyer (verified owner)

    Love that I have this tool to help relax my children when they are tired and achy at night. We like the consistency and that it’s not overly fragrant. It’s very soothing to calm achy muscles!

  12. Corey (verified owner)

    I get the sensitive version and use it every night before bed on my stomach and legs. 2 out of the 4 packages I ordered, the product has been kind of grainy where it doesn’t go on smooth but does melt down eventually if I keep rubbing it in.

  13. Nicole (verified owner)

    Calming. Helps me go to sleep when I am having an issue.

  14. Lindsey Byrom (verified owner)

    Love this product! Every time I use this product I am peacefully sent off into sleep. Love that I don’t have to consume melatonin or anything. I just apply a fingers worth on both feet and I am set!

  15. Lauren Hawk (verified owner)

    I have used this lotion with my two year old since she was just a small baby, and now also use it for my 6 month old. I love the smell and I can see how it calms my little ones too, helping them sleep soundly. I have used it occasionally for myself and cant say I feel a whole lot of change but the smell still has a positive affect. I’m giving it 4 stars rather than 5 because I have bought it before and it has come in a chunky consistency rather than the smooth lotion like consistency it’s meant to be. I was told this seperation can happen with temp changes which makes sense and thay it’s still fine to use. But it just isn’t as nice to apply to my kids when it’s gritty and greasy. Still would recommend this product though!

  16. Jess (verified owner)

    I’m so glad I’ve incorporated this product into my bedtime routine. I have get a more restful sleep. Only downside is that I think it smells a little funky but the benefits far outweigh that.

  17. Carol Jones (verified owner)

    Thank you for this product. I occasionally have some wicked muscle spasms. And after reading reviews here, I’ve learned new ways to use my Goodnight Lotion. I love that you continue to expand your product line!

  18. Jackie Klein (verified owner)

    I am sleeping so much better since using the Good Night Lotion! I get more deep sleep each night and don’t wake up as often. I will definitely keep using it!

  19. Betsy Briggs (verified owner)

    The Good Night Lotion was one of my first purchases from earthley.
    I have insomnia , so not much sleep has always been normal for me. I refused the prescriptions the Dr’s offered me over the years.
    I was amazed at how this product helped me!
    I put it on my grandchildren when they say they’re having trouble sleeping too.
    It only takes a very small amount.
    I do love this!

  20. Sarah (verified owner)

    10/10 recommend! I use after leg day at the gym and on my back before bed and I have noticed a big difference! It’s easier to get comfortable and fall asleep after a crazy workout!
