Good Night Lotion – For Healthy Sleep and Magnesium

2003 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.

  1. Jessica H. (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this stuff. My son does too. I had muscle aches one night and I used this that night and was so refreshed the next morning. I now swear by this product!

  2. Tara (verified owner)

    I frequently used the Good Night Magnesium Lotion and am impressed by its unique blend of magnesium chloride with nourishing oils like apricot, mango butter, and shea butter. The lotion is not only effective for promoting healthy sleep but also provides moisturizing benefits to the skin. I appreciate its clean ingredients and the option to choose between original, sensitive, or the limited-edition Blue Bliss (which k have yet to try but will do so in the future!). It’s reassuring to know that it’s formulated by an herbalist and mother of 6, and it’s safe for the whole family. The absence of harmful substances and third-party lab testing for heavy metals make it a trustworthy choice for those seeking a natural sleep aid.

  3. Sarah House (verified owner)

    We use this on our four kids every night. Not only does it help them sleep, it’s great for growing pains! When they are in a growth spurt and complain their legs hurt, we just put on a little extra lotion at night. It helps keep them comfortable and supports their bodies at the same time.

  4. Kate McKinney (verified owner)

    I use this on my son nightly – it helps with getting him to sleep. We used to use another brand and he always cried putting it on because it would get tingly. He willingly puts it on and likes to do it himself. I was worried because it feels ‘greasy’ but there is no transfer to clothing and it soaks in nicely.

  5. Roxann Elliot (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this. Feels good, goes on smoothly and really helps with my pain.

  6. Kaitlyn Cabe (verified owner)

    This product is incredible! I put a pea sized amount on my stomach and I am instantly sleepy in 15-30 minutes! GAME CHANGER!

  7. Erika B. (verified owner)

    We LOVE this in our home. We’ve used it on everyone of every age including our6month old. We all feel the benefits and look forward to the nightly routine. We know this is a highly depleted mineral and love that Earthley has found a non toxic way to help us replenish,

  8. Nikki (verified owner)

    Love this as a bedtime routine for my kids!

  9. Megan (verified owner)

    I use this on my neck when I have a headache and its helps so much!
    I also love to give it to my friends and I’ve had lots of comment on how it helps with their joint pain as well.

  10. Sarah

    I bought this when I was pregnant with my third child. It didn’t work as well so I stopped using it for about a year. I decided I wanted to stop taking unisom every night so I went back to this. It does work! Sometimes I need to rub on more later in the night and sometimes I just need a break for a night or two and try unisom but it works. I also let my family use it to help them fall asleep. I like that there’s no smell at all.

  11. Jessi D (verified owner)

    We use this stuff for ourselves and our 3 year old every night and it’s made such a difference in our quality of sleep!

  12. Tiffany Stevens (verified owner)

    This stuff works!! I purchased this about 5 months ago and my son and husband love using it every night! They say it helps them sleep so much better. Its become part of bedtime routine. I have also tried it several different times, but for me I feel like I have a lot of dreams when I’ve used it, so I prefer to stick to the vitamin D cream at night instead! Great products that have helped my family so much!

  13. Alex (verified owner)

    Was looking to get a better night sleep without using melatonin and came across this! A little goes a long way and I feel more rested when I wake up in the morning. I have been using almost 3 months now!

  14. Mary DB (verified owner)

    The magnesium cream is part of my bedtime ritual. I have restless leg, and I do find the cream calms the movement in my legs and helps me sleep.

  15. Hope Washburn (verified owner)

    This lotion is literally the absolute best! I used this religiously while pregnant and it helped me not have leg cramps and sleep better!!

  16. Kendra (verified owner)

    We Love good night lotion. We use it on all our kids before bed to help with sleep and it’s worked wonders. We originally tried melatonin and it had off effects on our kids and we knew we didn’t want to use it long term. Earthley goodnight lotion is great on their sensitive skin, helps with staying asleep, helps with pregnancy leg cramps, helps when the kids have constipation, etc. Highly recommend!

  17. Bonita (verified owner)

    My favorite product and must have all the time. After trying everything including dietary changes, this is the only thing that has gotten rid of my heart palpitations. Also helps with muscle aches and sleep.

  18. forhimalone (verified owner)

    I am so thankful for this product and won’t go without it! I have had significantly less headaches since I started using it!

  19. Roxy (verified owner)

    I sleep so much better and my daughter who gets legs cramps and sore muscles (10) loves putting it on and she feels relief!!

  20. emdphotographystudio (verified owner)

    This cream really helped me with first trimester insomnia. I am 21 weeks pregnant now, and realized after two nights where I didn’t sleep as deeply last week, I had forgotten to apply Good Night Lotion before bed both times. The third night I started again, and I was sleeping deeply all night again by the fourth night! If I have to get up to use the bathroom in the night at all (only once usually), I am quick to fall asleep again!
