Memory & Focus Essential Oil Roll-On (Roller-Bottle) Recipe for Adults

Memory & Focus Essential Oil Roll-On Recipe for Adults

Essential Oil Roll-On Bottles are also known as Rollerballs and Roller Bottles.

AromaWeb's Memory & Focus Rollerball Recipe simplifies the process of making your own pre-diluted essential oil roller-bottle to help support you as you work, study or do anything that requires concentration and your attention.

Rosemary ct Cineole Essential Oil, Black Pepper Essential Oil and Sweet Orange Essential Oil are the focus of this rollerball recipe. They are uplifting and help to support memory, concentration and focus. All three essential oils featured in this formulation also smell great together.

What is the Best Method of Using Essential Oils for Memory and Focus?

To help support my memory and improve my ability focus and concentrate, I personally benefit most when I use a personal essential oil inhaler. However, the use of an inhaler isn't practical for everyone or for every situation (same with roll-ons too!). To learn what a personal inhaler is, please read AromaWeb's Aromatherapy and Essential Oil Inhalers Guide.

If you're going to be around other individuals who possibly could have contraindications or a sensitivity to aromas or to the particular essential oils used in this memory and focus rollerball recipe, it may be best to consider using a personal inhaler instead. Personal inhalers help to prevent others from having to smell your blends and they are more private. The disadvantage to personal inhalers is that you manually have to open the inhaler each time you want to use it.

The topical application of diluted essential oil using a roller-ball is a great choice for when you are active or in situations where you aren't able to manually reach for, open and sniff a personal inhaler.

Who Is This Memory & Focus Essential Oil 10ml Roll-On Recipe Intended For?

Due to the contraindications of Rosemary Essential Oil for children, this recipe is only intended for use by non-pregnant adults who are otherwise healthy.

Ingredients to Make One Memory & Focus Essential Oil 10ml Roll-On

This recipe is formulated to to make one 10ml roll-on bottle. Verify the size roll-on bottle that you have. If necessary, adjust the recipe to accommodate for the size roll-on bottle that you have.

Drops are used as the form of measurement in this recipe so that this blend is as easy as possible to create. This Memory & Focus Essential Oil Roll-on Blend is not intended for mass duplication/commercial sale. For the most accurate measurements and ability to reduplicate a blend, measuring by weight is best.

Directions for Making the Memory & Focus Essential Oil Roller-Ball Recipe

  • Make sure that your hands are clean and dry when touching the components of the roll-on bottle.
  • If necessary, remove the top from the empty roll-on bottle and place the components of the roll-on bottle on a clean surface.
  • Begin by adding the essential oils to your clean roll-on bottle. Carefully add the number of drops specified for each essential oil.
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Add the roller assembly to the bottle and then add the cap. Make sure that all components are securely in place and that the cap has been screwed up well.
  • Gently shake the bottle to mix the essential oils into the Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Label the bottle and add the date that you made the roll-on recipe so that you can keep track of the shelf-life. Also label the bottle with the ingredients or keep a notebook that includes the ingredients.
  • Although the roll-on may be used immediately, it's best to set your roll-on aside for at least 1-2 days before use so that all of the essential oils have time to thoroughly and evenly blend into the Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Important Tips and Comments

This recipe includes Rosemary ct Cineole Essential Oil and Black Pepper Essential Oil as both of these essential oils have demonstrated intriguing results for the support of memory and cognitive function.

Everyone is different, and this Memory & Focus Essential Oil Roll-on Blend recipe may not work for you, or it may not work as well for you as it does for me. However, this recipe can be a great starting point in your quest to create your own personal memory and concentration recipe that works best for you.

Never fill a roll-on bottle with just essential oil. Essential oils should always be properly diluted before application to the skin.

This recipe calls for the use of Fractionated Coconut Oil as the carrier oil for use in this memory & concentration roll-on blend because Fractionated Coconut Oil is a clear, lightweight, non-greasy oil that has a long shelf life. If you prefer, you can substitute the Fractionated Coconut Oil with a different carrier oil.

If you are used to using aromatic products from companies that make their fragrances super strong, you could possibly find that this rollerball recipe may smell weak to you at first. Avoid adding more essential oil to make the aroma stronger. If the blend does seem aromatically weak to you, read AromaWeb's Guide to Safely Diluted Essential Oil Blends May Smell Weak At First.

How To Use The Memory & Focus Roll-On

To use the Memory & Focus Essential Oil Roll-On, remove the cap and glide the rollerball over the inside of your wrists, your temples (make sure the blend does not get in your eyes) and/or on the pulse points of your neck.

To effectively assist you in supporting your memory and concentration, it's best that you place it on exposed areas of your body so that you can smell and inhale the aromatic molecules so that they enter your lungs (which in turn will lead to your bloodstream) faster.

Reapply as necessary, but do not apply excessively.

Discontinue use immediately if you experience any skin irritation or difficulties from usage.

Follow the below precautions and the safety tips shown on this page.


Due to the contraindications of Rosemary Essential Oil for children, this recipe is only intended for use by non-pregnant adults who are otherwise healthy.

Although this blend is formulated so that it can be lightly rolled onto your temples, this blend is not intended to be used elsewhere on the face, near your eyes, near your mouth or near other orifices. Do not apply the roll-on to damaged skin, cuts, wounds or other problem areas.

Shelf Life

Use Within 3-6 Months. Although the individual ingredients used in this recipe have a longer shelf life, the roll-on comes into contact with your skin which allows oil and debris to get into the blend. The dirt and debris will shorten the shelf life.

For the freshest and most sanitary product, therefore, it's best to use it up and make a fresh roll-on bottle within 3-6 months.
