I am surprised at using Olive Oil. I didn’t think it would freeze. Seems I have heard about using water rather than the oil too for preserving the herbs.

Water works great too, but freezing them in oil especially helpful if you want to use the herbs to cook. Oil freezes at 37 degrees fahrenheit. source
