I live in Florida and I'm about 10 minutes from the ocean, so I was just curious to know others opinion on ocean water and it's 'cleansing' abilities. When I lived in North Carolina, I used a rather complicated ritual for making holy water and now that I can simply go to the ocean and collect water anytime I want, I was just curious as to whether or not you guys think that it would be just as beneficial? My thought is that I could simply use the ocean water and say the prayer used for the holy water over it instead of step one and step two of the holy water which involves spring water and sea salt anyways.
Furthermore, isn't it possible to just cleanse and charge magical items in the ocean anyway?
I know this stuff seems silly, but before I lived close to the ocean, I didn't consider it an option so it is still new to me.
