coconut oil - refrigerate?

A couple of friends have been going on and on about the wonders of coconut oil. On impulse last week I grabbed a container of it while at Costco. Needless to say it came in a 55 gallon drum (yes I'm exaggerating, its only 1 1/2 quarts) Anyhow, because its warm here all year (84f here today) i put it in the fridge. Then I decided to use some and found that it had the consistency and hardness of the surface of an ice rink. I'm guessing that refrigerated is not how most people use it. But at room temperature it is an oil, not a paste that I usually see. Any comments?
