There are about 80 different salts, minerals and trace elements in oceanwater. Many are very health giving. They can restore moisture to eczema and dermatitis affected skin. For oceanwater to be effective it should be taken everyday and there are at least three ways, by which, it can be absorbed. These are: sipping a drop of oceanwater, walking along the beach to breath the fresh, damp oceanic air (sea-fog) or swimming at the beach. If you choose to go swimming at the beach, I'd recommend that you bath in clean fresh water with in an hour of leaving the ocean. This is for immunological reasons (eczema is of the immune system). For example, at a wilderness beach on the mouth of a fresh water river, like those beaches along Victoria's tidal river in Wilsons Promontory national park, you simply walk up stream and bath in the fresh water river after you've finished swimming in the Ocean (Bass Strait). It may well be three weeks before oceanwater's medicinal effects can be felt. To maintain health, continue to include a very small drop of oceanwater in the daily diet or breath sea-fog by simply walking along the beach each day. A salt called pure sodium chloride, although not directly medicinal, is one of the 80 different salts and minerals that constitute oceanwater. It should less be eaten in very minute amounts and this is the main reason why only a tiny drop of oceanwater can be taken.
Clean oceanic beaches are where
some of the freshest seawater can be found. Go to a beach that is unpolluted.
Oceanwater can be stored, for consumption, in stone jars. It contains small
plankton sea life
, so like other eatable sea creatures (e.g. clams and muscles) it will
only remain fresh for about two days.
If oceanwater, intended for medicinal sipping, has been out of the ocean
for more that 2 days then it has passed it's 'use-by' and should be discarded.
Oceanwater is alkaline 
(the opposite of acidic) and a few millilitres can just slightly reduce
the acidity of lemon juice.
Attention read the section about Lemons before using lemon juice.
Warning: Considerable care should be taken not to overdose on oceanwater. [5,6]
an overdose of oceanwater can cause organ damage. Keep it
out of reach of children.
Amongst the 80 or so medicinal salts and minerals contained in oceanwater is a salt, that is not directly medicinal, called pure sodium chloride. There are 34 grams of pure sodium chloride in a 1 litre of oceanwater.[16,17] The amount of oceanwater you can safely intake is limited by this high sodium chloride content.[5,6] Sodium chloride should only be taken in very small amounts. 40% of sodium chloride is sodium while the remaining 60% is chloride.  Humans need sodium in their diet, but no more than 250 milligrams per day. There are about 250 milligrams of sodium in 3 millilitres of oceanwater. Another source of sodium chloride is table salt, also known as rock salt, which is mined from underground deposits. Rock salt (table salt) (sodium chloride) like the pure sodium chloride that occurs in oceanwater is not medicinal for eczema. Western man already consumes far too much sodium. Despite oceanwater's many medicinal salts, it still has a high sodium content.[5,16,17]Beware of this. Studies of present day jungle tribesmen and estimates of our ancestors over the past million years suggest that natural human sodium intake, per day, is about 10 milligrams to 250 milligrams (0.5 mmol to 10 mmol). An amount uptaken by the eating of fresh fruit, vegetables and occasionally animals. Food in nature is low in sodium and high in potassium.  People in the supermarket countries consume 2.75 grams to 5.75 grams (120 mmol to 250 mmol) of sodium per day. Which is a per day uptake 11 to 575 times higher than the per day up take man has had over the last million years of human evolution. There are 1.36 grams of sodium per 100 millilitres of oceanwater, so only a small amount of oceanwater can be consumed. Your daily intake of oceanwater may not be able to exceed a drop. Perhaps only as much as .20 millilitres to 2 millilitres (2.72 sodium milligrams to 27.2 sodium milligrams) of oceanwater a day and then only intake as much as to be medicinal. The less the better. A glass graduated medicine dropper (eye dropper) can be used to measure a small accurate dosage. Fortunately, that ocean drop amount can still be effective for treating eczema.
Care must be taken when treating youngsters with oceanwater.
The kidneys of babies, infants and pre-school children are unable to filter out and excrete adult quantities of sodium (salt).[5,6] Babies under 6 months are particularly susceptible.
Excessive salt intake can damage kidneys. Do not use oceanwater or salt
in recipes when preparing food for babies or toddlers.
I can not recommend feeding a baby, infant or pre-school child with
any saltwater (seawater/oceanwater) or salts/ocean salts.
A safer way for a baby, an infant
or a child to intake oceanwater is by breathing clean, fresh, breezy ocean
air at the beach. In the air at the beach, there's naturally occurring
oceanwater humidity (moisture in the air) or sea-fog which varies in volume/amount/concentration
depending upon the time of day and season. It can be taken up through lung
and skin respiration. That is simply carry your baby for an early morning
stroll along the beach. Breathing the air, just being on the beach. This
to me seems like a natural and safe way of dosing an infant with very minute
amounts of oceanwater.
Beware that, when swimming, oceanwater is absorbed through the skin into the body and must still be excreted through the kidneys.
Warning: People with other medical conditions should consult a physician before changing their salt intakes. For example, other medical conditions include: pre-menstrual swelling (bloated feelings, swelling of the abdomen, ankles, fingers) heart failure (narrowed arteries/heart muscle injury) liver disease (liver damage can cause the kidney to retain sodium) or kidney disease etc.
Choose a clean, unpolluted beach. Some beaches are polluted by Organochlorides. Organochlorides are in insulating foam, electric insulating fluids, polyvinyl chloride containers of all kinds and some fast food packaging. Organochlorides disrupt mitogens (hormones) and development. They cause liver, nervous system, kidney and immunological disorders (weaken the body's ability to fight disease). They affect gene function and cause some cancers. The human body can't expel them so non-decreasing levels accumulate in human body fat. 600 tonnes of organochlorides a year leach from land fills in Britain alone. Through seepage into soil and creeks a lot of it ends up flowing into the ocean. Keep away from contaminated beach areas near drain outlets, polluted rivers and creeks.
Globally the untreated sewage of more than two billion people flows into the ocean. Keep away from polluted beaches. Keep away from sewage drain outflows and patches of toxic red/blue-green algae. Toxin producing algae bloom by feeding off sewage and pollution such as synthetic nitrogen/phosphorus based fertilizers. Among these blooming patches of algae numerous dangerous, exotic microbials proliferate. The warmer the weather the higher the number of algae and multiplying viruses. In the vial incubator that algal booms are, deadly new viruses mutate and multiply, feeding off human sewage.There, also, are busy bacteria that get to swapping (by transfers of plasmids and transposons) DNA inscribed lessons about effective multidrug resistance.[7,8] Algal bloom patches are deadly colonies of bacteria and human viruses including multidrug resistant human pathogens. One alga cell can harbour up to one million bacteria. One millilitre of water, amid a bloom, can contain ten thousand to one billion human viruses !
Keep away from sewage drain outlets, algal blooms and creeks contaminated
with either sewage or patches of toxic (blue-green/red) algae.
