Used to describe a brought-upsy that is so salty in nature that it revolves completely around the ocean. It's a state of mind that is irreversible once obtained, and does not come for all. It's a conciousness that could be confused as a religion or maybe an obsession, however, for those with salty roots it has said to be euphoric. Often associated with the concept of emocean.
"She's not right for you dude... she just doesn't have salty~roots."
