Embalming, as practiced today, is defined by the American Board of Funeral Service education as: “The chemical treatment of the dead human body to reduce the presence and growth of microorganisms, to temporarily inhibit organic decomposition, and to restore the dead human body to an acceptable physical appearance.”
Embalming suspends in time, the deaceased human body, in a temporary state of preservation. "Show me the manner in which a nation or community cares for their dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender sympathies of it’s people, their respect for the laws of the land, and their loyality to high ideals."
