What is the embalming process that The Natural Funeral chooses NOT to offer?

Embalming is an invasive process involving draining the body of fluids at death, puncturing internal organs to pump in highly carcinogenic embalming fluid, dyes and other toxic products. Despite claims to the contrary, it is not a sanitary measure but allows for the temporary preservation of the deceased’s remains. Cooling of the body is an acceptable legal alternative. In the US, modern embalming began during the Civil War. Before that, natural deathcare was the norm.

The Natural Funeral offers gentle, non-invasive care of your loved-one at death with Reverent Body Preparation.
