Embalming is the art and science of preserving human remains by treating them (in its modern form with chemicals) to forestall decomposition.
As practiced in the funeral homes of the Western World, embalming uses several steps. Modern embalming techniques are not the result of a single practitioner, but rather the accumulation of many decades.
Embalming chemicals are a variety of preservatives, sanitizers, disinfectant agents and additives used in modern embalming to temporarily delay decomposition and restore a natural appearance for viewing a body after death.
