A way to vary nozzle temperature during print?

I have a spool of the Mystic Green and Mystic Brown Prusament PLA and was wondering if there was a way to vary the print temperature (like a sine wave, potentially with varying frequency as well) during the print? Or is the only way to vary temp currently inserting gcode?

I can't think of any other way than using layer change custom gcode in PrusaSlicer. But I don't know if you can use a sin() function in an if then statement in Prusa's custom gcode.

You'd have to do it in gcode and any math would have to be done in the slicer. Unfortunately, math options are very limited PrusaSlicer (and most other slicers). You could write a post processing script that modified the layer change gcode.
