Cosmetic enhancement and disinfection of the corpse designed to last for a few days after the funeral and burial. It is practised to ensure the economic health of mortuary workers. The ancient Egyptians carefully removed the internal organs, washed the body, and bound it up with spices so that later resurrection would be possible. Modern embalming leaves the internal organs in place and uses preservative chemicals that ensure that once the process is finished, the body is completely and forever dead.
