Do leg cramps or muscle spasms wake you up in the middle of the night? *Yep!
Do restless legs prevent you from falling asleep? *Raises hand!
Weather changes like heatwaves or the pressure pushing in storms have always caused my legs to cramp and spasm. However, prior to using topical CBD lotions and oils, leg cramps and spasms were an every day and night occurrence.
When I saw that Earthley had a lotion to help with restless legs, I just had to try it!!!
Although CBD lotions and topical oils are fantastic for restless legs, cramps, and spasms, they are also expensive!!! My first thought was how great would this be if it worked, because it would give those who couldn’t afford a quality topical CBD product an affordable option.
Wondering if Good Night Lotion from Earthley works? Keep reading…….

Love at first night
OMG!! I was skeptical, as I am with every product that claims to help reduce pain or symptoms from my chronic illnesses. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
As you know, I have a long list of chronic illnesses. They include, but are not limited to: fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, degenerative disc disease, coccydynia, and abdominal adhesions (result of endometriosis and surgical scarring). They all have a role in the pain that I experience throughout my body. Each night, even after I have treated my abdomen all day with PEMF therapy and have vaped my evening dose of cannabis, I still struggle to get my legs, lower back muscles, and abdominal muscles to relax.
On that first night, I rubbed Good Night Lotion on hips, lower back, legs, and feet. At first I felt nothing different, but the label did say to do it 10-15 minutes before going to bed making me think that maybe there is a slight delay in effect.
I was right!! Soon after I crawled under my blankets and arranged my pillows, I felt the areas that I had applied the lotion melt. Seriously, it felt like they had turned into melted butter. Of course now the tension in my neck, shoulders, wrists, and abdominal muscles was more noticeable, so I applied the lotion to those areas as well. I had the best sleep ever!!! And the best part was waking up without my muscles feeling tight or sore.
To put this product to the test, I continued to do the same night after night for an entire week. I picked an amazing week to do so, as it was a stormy one!! And guess what? I wasn’t woken up with leg cramps or spasms, nor did my legs feel restless like they would normally during that type of weather.
To further my test of the product, I discontinued use the following week, also a stormy week. Can you guess what happened? I experienced horrific spasms. Seriously, knots so bad that I would wake up crying and screaming.
As you may have guessed, I quickly resumed use of Good Night Lotion.
I want to note that I am not stingy in my use of the product. I don’t use a smidgen, I use a lot! However, my body has always been deficient in magnesium which may be why I need more than what is suggested on the packaging. But so far so good… I haven’t had any unpleasant or unwanted side effects from this product like I have from any other magnesium supplement I have tried in the past.
The best part about this product, aside from it working better than I expected it to, is that even with the amounts that I use each night, it won’t bankrupt me!
It is available in two forms, one with lavender essential oils and unscented. I am using the lavender one and haven’t had a problem. And I am someone who has to buy almost everything unscented or for sensitive skin. Both cost the same amount and are available in 4 and 8oz jars.
