The first step of embalming a dead body is to first take it to the "place of embalming". Then the body is washed and cleaned. A slit is made in the body and internal organs are removed except the heart
Then the body is packed and covered with Natron and left to dry for 40 days. After that the body is then washed and rubbed with oils
Thirdly, the body is then packed with linen and sweet smelling herbs. Four Canopic jars store the four vital organs taken out of the body (except the heart)
In this stage of the process, the wrapping finally begins. It can take the priest up to 15 days to fully wrap the pharaoh
Then the mummy is wrapped in Amulets and other scared items, and then Osiris's image is drawn onto the wrappings
Lastly, the mummy is placed unto a coffin called a Sarcophagus. A special ceremony is held called the Opening of the Mouth. Egyptians believed this ceremony released spirits called Ba and Ka.
