Ancient Egyptian Burial Site found with 8,000,000 Dog Mummies
Ancient Egypt's Essential Oil Usage With Dogs
The over-achieving Ancient Egyptians created distillation methods of extracting oils from the trees, herbs, and plants in their lands. They used these essential oils for medical, spiritual, and throughout their daily activities and of course, for embalming.
Cats are well known for being revered as almost gods by Ancient Egyptians. But did you know they also embalmed dogs in honor of Anubis, the God of Death and the Underworld? One tomb site alone yielded the mummified remains of 8,000,000, yes, that is 8 MILLION embalmed dogs.
