I keep it in my kitchen cupboard, but I also made a separate jar for body use. That way I don't contaminate my food.
Just use a spoon and scoop out a few spoonfuls of it into a container for use. Take a little bit of it and rub it between your hands and your body heat will melt it.
You can get fractionated coconut oil if you want it in oil form, but it's significantly more expensive. I'd rather spend the $18 at Costco and get the huge tub that'll last you way more times than a bottle of the fractionated stuff.
