There is no need to heat coconut oil for topical applications. It will melt in the palm of your hand. I think the article should be revised as the risk of burning yourself is pretty high if you use heat - and it might deter people from using it if it seems too much trouble to warm it. Good to know that "Extra Virgin" is as silly as it seemed.

I think it depends on where you stay. Living in a cold region, coconut oil usually doesn’t melt easily here. I thus have to usually heat it before applying. But I don’t heat it too much just warm it a little.

I usually thought it is important to have a warm skin before applying coconut oil as it gets better absorbed. Therefore I apply coconut oil at night after bath. But I don’t heat the oil per say.
