Maybe you don't even need oil, or freezing.  Has anyone tried using
hermetically sealed plastic packages with N gas inside?  I know
some products that are sensitive to oxidation and
loss of volatiles, such as hops sold to home brewers, can be
shipped in oxygen-free packaging, and they seem to hold up well
enough that they can sit on a u-brew store shelf for quite a while
with no deterioration.  -RSW
