Good Night Lotion (Magnesium Lotion)

Rated 4.86 out of 5 based on 58 customer ratings
(58 customer reviews)


Promote restful sleep with this wonderful lotion!  Our super creamy magnesium lotion has many benefits beyond just sleep, too!



Have you ever held a baby up over your head at 4 AM and whispered “Just go to sleep already!”  Good, me neither.

How about lying in bed at midnight, desperately wishing that you could fall asleep, now that the little ones are finally down (for now)?  Knowing that tomorrow, you’ll need all the coffee just to be functional.

You might just be missing…Good Night Lotion. (Our magnesium lotion.)

We’re for real about this.  Good Night Lotion is for good nights.  Peaceful, sleepy, happy nights for the whole family.  Doesn’t that sound amazing?

The secret is the magnesium chloride and the lavender.  Lavender promotes restful sleep and helps you (or the “I hate bed time” little ones) fall asleep faster.  Magnesium chloride helps promote normal sleep cycles, meaning you stay asleep longer and the little ones don’t wake as often.  Many moms tell us it’s been their magical solution!

The only downside?  No more 3 AM parties.  But you won’t really miss those, will you?

The fun doesn’t stop there.  Good Night Lotion, also called magnesium lotion, really isn’t just for good nights.  It may also help with growing pains, occasional constipation, restless legs, headaches, and a whole bunch of other stuff.  It’s a must-have for your natural remedy chest

Apply a pea-sized amount to legs or belly 10 – 15 minutes before bed time.  Use slightly more for adults.  There is approximately 200 mg of magnesium in 1 tsp. of lotion.


Safe for the whole family, from newborns through adults, including nursing and pregnant mamas.

Using too much may cause temporary diarrhea, but will not cause any long-term or serious issues.  If you notice loose stools, use less.

    Great texture and scent! Unlike most magnesium lotions and sprays, this one doesn’t leave our skin sticky or itchy.
    I haven’t noticed any changes in our baby’s poor sleep but it helps me sleep and is great for headaches or muscle aches.

    We use this on our 8 year old, 6 year old, and 19 month old. The youngest is teething badly so he doesn’t show results. However, my oldest was always anxious and couldn’t settle before bed. Since using the lotion, he is sleeping within 10 minutes.

    My kids beg for Goodnight Lotion! It has a wonderful silky texture that does not leave their skin greasy. It has become part of our bedtime routine with a little foot massage while my husband reads them their story. I highly recomment it!

    Love love love this lotion! It smells amazing and the texture is super creamy. I have been using this on my two toddlers for the last few nights and it really helps them relax and sleep well.

    I had been a good sleeper most of my life until somewhat recently when I would toss and turn all night. This lotion has brought me back to sleeping well throughout the night after a few weeks of being frustrated that I wasn’t getting the rest I needed to function well. It has a great texture and scent.

    This stuff is amazing. My son has had two sleep studies due to sleep difficulties. We’ve tried a number of natural remedies and even medication and nothing helped him fall asleep until we got goodnight lotion. I give him a foot rub with it before bed every night, and he’s asleep within about 10 minutes, which for him is a drastic improvement. Truly wonderful stuff!

    Love this lotion! My daughter is 5 and has never been a great sleeper. I’ve tried essential oils and magnesium spray, but they didn’t help like this lotion and the sleep tincture have helped. Amazing!

    My mother in law and I love this lotion! It has a great texture and a little goes a long way. It smells so yummy and it works! I have struggled with severe insomnia for years and this helps to calm me down a little bit before bed. I only wish it was more moisturizing but, I don’t know if that’s possible due to the magnesium.

    Amazing stuff! I started putting this on at bedtime because I was having a hard time falling asleep. I started using this and I fall asleep within 15-20 minutes, and I sleep like a baby! It feels so soft, too. I highly recommend it!

    Sweet Mother of Monkey Milk! The Good Night Balm worked! It should come with this warning though:

    WARNING: may cause the momma to wake up 6 times to check to make sure the toddler isn’t dead since this is the first time ever in 2.5 years that he has slept through the night. Ever.

    Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

    I love the smell! It seems to work well on my 2 year old who loves getting massages but haven’t noticed any difference on my 10 month. First time I ever put it on my children ,my husband was woken up FIRST by our baby in the middle of the night (which NEVER happens normally) because I was sleeping like a baby. Definitely worth trying!

    This stuff is amazing!! I put it on my 10 month old every night before bed and it almost instantly relaxes him and helps him fall asleep easier and stay asleep longer!!

    great stuff! it’s smooth and smells good. it’s a little greasier than i would like, but it absorbs quickly so it’s not really much of an issue and certainly doesn’t make me like the product any less.

    Not that this product even needs another great review BUT I just must! I literally don’t think I could live, well sleep, workout this stuff! The first night I used or on my toddler I checked to see if she died lol. She’s never slept so well! I’m pregnant and when I wake up in the middle of the night to potty I can barely open my eyes and when I’m done I fall right back to sleep! Between the two of us the 1 oz. jar lasted a whole month! Pea sized for baby and a dime size for me. Please do yourself a favor and just get this product! You will not regret!

    So far so good. My daughter is two months a suffers from neonatal lupus. Night times are hard usually, but tonight, after her bath, I rubbed a small amount on the soles of her feet and she has been asleep for a good solid hour. I also rubbed it on my husbands legs, since he suffers from restless legs, and so far he is feeling a slight reduction in tingling sensation that keeps him up at night. Smells lovely.

    I am 40 weeks pregnant and have hit that phase where sleep is near impossible (though my 21 month old is sleeping SO much better, thanks to this lotion and the Sleepy Time Herbal Extract)…last night I massaged some Good Night Lotion into my legs and feet and I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow!! This hasn’t happened for me in forever! I love this stuff

    My 5 yr old got a round of shots yesterday and was just irritable last night and wouldn’t sleep. I put some GNL on the bottoms of both feet and wrists and she was sound asleep in 10 mins! Amazing product!!

    I loved the good night lotion. I use on my daughter and it has been a soothing part of her bedtime routine. She is more easily able to fall asleep. It also helps me relax and go to sleep instead of having my mind racing like usual.

    So glad my daughter introduced this lotion to me. I had heard stories about menopause and sleeplessness and thought “that will never happen to me – I’ve never had a problem falling asleep or staying asleep” I was wrong! Once I started waking up due to hot flashes at night I was having trouble getting back to sleep and would be awake for an hour or two sometimes. I still wake up with hot flashes but since I have started using GNL I have no problem falling right back to sleep. Thanks for this amazing product and thanks to my daughter for sharing it with me!!!

    Absolutely amazing stuff. I use it on my 5, 3, and almost 6 month old. My husband and I tease that once this stuff is applied- it’s a sudden domino affect. First the youngest, then the middle, then the eldest. They sleep amazing. Must have for every parent!

    I love love love this stuff. My put this lotion on my daughter, husband and my legs every night before bed. It smells amazing and I swear it works. We sleep very well now. It started after about 4 nights in a row of my 2 year old not sleeping for some reason which means that the entire house is up. Not good because my husband works hard everyday and when he doesn’t sleep he struggles. We started the dream cream and it has become a nighttime ritual. He is not a “crunchy” man but loves this stuff. I swear though he is becoming more “crunchy” everyday 🙂 Life is much better with sleep!

    My 2.5 yo is and has been a terrible sleeper. She usually takes forever to go to sleep and wakes up in the night to come to our bed. I haven’t noticed anything magical using either the sleep drops or the sleep lotion, though she does like to take the drops and put the lotion on at night. I wish it worked as well for her as the other reviewers mentioned. Not a magic bullet for everyone unfortunately. I don’t really like how th lotion feels and always wash my hands afterwards but it doesn’t bother me on my legs

    My 14 month old is a terrible sleeper. After reading all the reviews, I was hoping this would help us out. Unfortunetly it didn’t work great for us. I didn’t really notice a huge difference on my baby and maybe a little on my 8 year old. Don’t love the texture, but I love the smell.

    Literally, amazing. I have RLS and while breastfeeding it only gets worse. I was recommend this lotion by a friend and it’s magical!! After five to ten minutes of applying it to my legs, they were calm and I slept sooooo much better. We even put some on our toddler when she seems restless! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this for anyone with RLS!

    I also bought the mama one for my friend who is pregnant and having trouble sleeping because of restlessness and cramping–she LOVES it and she is not easy to please!!! Lol

    Purchased the lotion about a week ago. Put it on both of my LO (2 yr old & 10 month) & myself & i feel i got a good night’s rest. All 3 of us slept for a good solid 3-4 hrs. Then i think it wears off. My 2 yr old still wakes up at night a few times but i think it works pretty good. Smells good too.

    Love the Good Night Lotion. I got it for my 6 month old and she is now sleeping 12 hours a night! She used to sleep restlessly and wake up a lot but no more. I also just started using it and don’t have as much sore muscles in the morning. Have recommended it to a few people already!

    Love this product! I have had insomnia for 17 years! I have taken magnesium tablets, benadryl, presdription meds – everything in an attempt to sleep through the night. This lotion has made all the difference! I LOVE it! I can’t say enough good things about it. I use it every night without fail. I love the lavender scent but if you don’t I’m sure the unscented will work also. My husband even uses it now because he saw the difference it made for me. Can’t recommend this highly enough – it’s amazing!

    One of the first items I ever ordered with this awesome company, and I keep coming back for more!! Helps to massage my bad hip area, plus will ease most of my pain (my hip is bone-on-bone). Upon nighttime, if I apply a bit across my forehead, it’s usually “good night Irene”!!! Only on very restless nights I may have to apply a few times, but not very often. I recommend you to try this product, you probably will not be disappointed ~~~

    I love this lotion. I use it on myself and my 14 month old every night. One night, my little guy was super fussy and wouldn’t fall asleep; I realized I had forgotten to the Goodnight Lotion. I rubbed it on his feet, and he was asleep in 2 minutes. It really does work, and a little goes a long way, so the container will last us a while!
