Frozen jojoba: Cold weather turns jojoba into yellow jello

In On the Farm by Allie Aronstam

Who would have guessed that Jojoba can freeze?! I sure didn’t until I left a few bottles in my car over night.

Back in 1997, we shipped a drum of jojoba to Canada for testing and processing. The reps from the Canadian office called and wanted to know why they received “yellow jello!”  The Jojoba had frozen in transit and started to defrost at their facility.

If you live in a cold area and order Jojoba, don’t be surprised if the Jojoba comes frozen! You can hold the Jojoba in your hand, the mere body warmth will start to defrost it, or you can leave it out at room temperature, and you’ll be able to use it in no time! I have heard of people using a hair dryer to thaw out the jojoba for even quicker usage.
