    Question Why my coconut oil is liquid all the time?

    I thought my mum uses it. But she doesn't. Then I thought it's because I keep it in my bathroom, and there's hot inside when someone takes a bath, so it melts. But I checked it today, in the midday, many hours after anyone took a bath. It wasn't used and it wasn't heated. Also, I have no windows in bathroom, so sun doesn't reach it. It's in plastic blue bottle, which is not transparent.
    ETA: The oil used to became solid after I finished using it. For... 2 months I think, more or less. I have it about three months. And 2 or 3 weeks ago I noticed it's liquid all the time.
    Is there something wrong with my coconut oil?

    Coconut oil goes liquid at a very low temperature. I think it's something like 24˚C.

    And nope, unless it smells rancid, your coconut oil is perfectly fine.

    You could try putting it in the fridge and see if it would solidify there.

    Also, I think there's some liquid coconut oil out there, it's processed differently and doesn't solidify.

    Are you positive it's not fractionated coconut oil? The fractionated stuff is liquid all the time. I don't think it has a scent, but I'm not sure.

    I forgot to mention it- the oil used to became solid after I finished using it. For... 2 months I think. And 2 or 3 weeks ago I noticed it's liquid all the time.

    Um...did it just turn summer a few weeks ago where you are? It stays liquid almost all the time for me too, if I keep my house just a hair warmer to save on electricity.

    Has your house by any chance been getting warmer with the change of seasons?

    See, I am stupid. I totally cannot associate facts. Of course, there's late spring/almost summer!

    I second (or third) the notion that since the weather has heated up in the last few weeks that is your problem. Where I live it is so warm my coconut oil is always liquid all year unless I refridgerate it!
