To make Natron you will need Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) and Sodium Chloride (Table Salt). Measure equal quantities of both 50/50 and mix together. Important Note: Natron is a desiccant which means that it absorbs water. You should therefore keep your mix in an airtight container to prevent it from adsorbing moisture from the atmosphere. Ancient Egyptians left human bodies in Natron for around 4 0 days to completely dry however, you will need to… Read More
