TRUTH !!
Large amounts of natron salt was packed around the body until the 70th
day, when the body was desiccated.
After being dried in the bed of natron salt, the body is then washed and
all traces of the salt removed. The cadaver is then taken to per nefer,
"the house of beauty," where it is stuffed and shaped back to its normal
size. Many perfumes and oils were rubbed on the body and the open wounds
were filled and covered with wax. Over the wax a metal plate decorated
with symbols of protection sealed the wounds. After the anointing was
completed, molten resin was added to cover the body. Both men and women
would be colored with ochre. The men would be colored red and the women
yellow.
The body was then ready to be wrapped with anointed linens.
