When we say coconut oil, you may be thinking of a pourable liquid, much like your conventional cooking oil, but Dr. Bronner's is a jar of solid Organic Coconut Oil! This makes it easier to use and portion control. No accidental spills either! But, you can ‘melt’ this coconut oil, too if you’d like. Keeping it cool will keep it solid and keeping it at room temp may make it more liquid (it depends on the climate).
This oil has a nutty aroma and a rich flavor. Sure, it may impart some flavor if you choose to cook or bake with it, but if you’re making curries or cookies, that’s a welcome addition!
