The Disabled Diva’s Review of Earthley Good Night Lotion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Tell me more

Magnesium chloride promotes normal sleep cycles to help you stay asleep longer, while lavender promotes a restful sleep. This product is make with 100% clean, mostly organic ingredients, and is always free of parabens, fragrances, common allergens, and is now vegan.

Ingredients:

Good Night Lotion:
apricot oil
organic shea butter
organic mango butter
magnesium chloride flakes
candelilla wax
lavender essential oil

Good Night Lotion Sensitive:
apricot oil
organic mango butter
kokum butter
magnesium chloride flakes
candelilla wax

If you are hesitant to try CBD products or just can’t afford them, this option is just as good, if not better than many CBD topical products available.

Earthly Soothing Skin Balm Review

Before I dive into my review I want to give you a little background to explain why I was so excited to test and review this product.

My youngest has eczema.  Her first rash appeared when she was an infant.  At that time she was prescribed a prescription cream and put on extreme dietary restrictions.  When I say extreme, I mean she had to be dairy and gluten free.  After a couple of years, her rash was completely gone.  Our doctor then had us slowly introduce dairy and wheat back into her diet.  Luckily, she suffered no reaction, so on we went with life…..

As she neared her 16th birthday, her eczema returned.  We made dietary changes and even discovered a new trigger, high fructose syrup!  These changes however weren’t enough.

A few years prior we, my husband, daughter, and I, decided to take a more natural approach to our healthcare needs.  In the past 2 years we have tried many natural lotions and balms to relieve her pain, redness, and itchiness.  We have failed to find anything that really worked, that is until now…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see in the comparison picture, there has been a major improvement in the past 18 days.  Now mind you, she is a teenager, meaning that she has forgotten to apply it a day here and a day there.  But, to see that kind of improvement without being on top of applying the balm every day, I am impressed.  I also want to note that she hasn’t been watching what she has been eating throughout this trial period either.  I am sure once she does, we will see even more improvement.  The best part is that her rashes no longer hurt, the skin isn’t broken, nor do they burn and itch.  She is going to continue using Soothing Skin Balm by Earthley, because it is the only thing she has tried that has worked without a prescription.

Update below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take a look at the picture above….

Tears rolled down my cheek when my daughter showed me her wrist this morning.  Never, never in since eczema returned to terrorize my daughter over 2 years ago, have we ever tried a product that produced these results.  She’s come close with others, but she also made major dietary changes with them.  She fully admits that she has eaten extremely poorly this past month, so we can rule out dietary changes in what has caused this improvement.

The improvements are amazing, but so is how little this is costing us.  Very little of the balm is needed.  I purchased the larger jar and we have barely made a dent in it.  I will update when we need to purchase another jar, but don’t wait to try it because it is going to be a long time!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 411

Now time for some information about the product itself.  Earthley Soothing Skin Balm is an all-natural balm that effectively soothes and promotes healing for eczema, dry skin, and itchy skin.  It can also help relieve symptoms of psoriasis, which I have and have just begun using on my rashes.  Seriously, I just started today, so I will update you on that another time.

Anyways, what I love most about Earthley’s products is that they are completely natural and always free of fragrances, parabens, sulfates, and polysorbate 80.

The ingredients in their Soothing Skin Balm are: 

Apricot oil: combats sensitive, dry, red, and irritated skin

Organic calendula flowers: soothes dry, itchy skin and is safe for children.

Organic glycerin: slows down cell regeneration which reduces the redness and rawness that is typical of skin affected by eczema

Organic beeswax: holds it all together and locks in moisture

Organic mango butter:  is thick, rich, and super moisturizing

That’s it!!

If you are looking for a natural and organic balm to soothe eczema, psoriasis, or dry skin, you need to try this product.  I hesitated on whether I should have purchase the smaller jar, you know to make sure it was going to help, but I have zero regrets for purchasing the larger 4oz jar.
