coconut oil in solid form?

curlygirly224curlygirly224 Posts: 16Registered Users
Does anyone know where I can get coconut oil in a solid form? I've heard that it comes like that, I don't even know if it's true or not because I've never seen it. I have it in a liquid form and I think it would be much easier to work with if it was more like shea butter where it is solid and you can rub it between your hands to soften it up a little bit. Thanks :)

    I got it at my local vitamin-supplement-health-nut-seed-herb store, which is this dinky shop on the street run by a mom & pop, not a chain store. Organic, unrefined coconut oil in a jar is solid in the refridgerator & semi-solid at room temp. Easily scoopable, & can be used like shea butter like you mentioned.

    I got mine from walmart and it was solid when I bought it but it melts at like 76 degrees. I keep it in the bathroom which is the second warmest place in our house so it's been liquid ever since I put it in there.

    Just keep it in a cool place, like the fridge.. It melts in warm temperatures and solid at room and cool temperatures.if it's solid I usually just scoop it up with a spoon if I want it to stay solid or rub it in between my hand or heat it up to liquid form.
