I keep it on the counter and apparently it got so hot in the kitchen the other day that it's no longer solid (like crisco). Guess I should refrigerate it, huh?
Mine did, too. I'm still using it though in it's liquid form. It goes on my eyes in the morning and in the dog food at night.

I wouldn't worry about refrigerating it. Mine melted the other day, but when it cooled down it solidified a bit. As long as it is sealed I don't think it would be a problem.
ETA: I just checked Nutiva's site (the brand I buy)...
Q. My coconut oil is now liquid. It was solid when I bought it at the store. Is it still okay?
A. This is our most frequently asked question. Yes, it’s perfectly okay. Coconut oil melts at about 76°F. Below this temperature it is a solid; above, it is a liquid.
Q. Does coconut oil need to be refrigerated?
A. This is our second most frequently asked question. No, coconut oil does not need to be refrigerated. As a matter of fact, if you put coconut oil in the refrigerator, it becomes nearly as hard as rock, a feature which can be useful in warm weather.

Thanks for the replies Actually, it's easier to use in liquid form.
I have also worked in use in liquid form and it really worked great. Thanks!

Sorry I am not trying to be rude. Was just stating the obvious.
God bless you diesel_dawg, no hard feelings.
I don't give a rat's ass what you say about me because your opinion of me means nothing at all - just stop wasting the time of members who choose not to get involved with train wrecks like yourself. You insist on trash talking - create your own thread, stop riding others' coat tails.
