Parsley has a very rich background to fall back on. Those little leaves on your plate at dinner may not look like much, but the Greeks used to crown their victors with garlands made out of parsley. It was also used in funeral rites and dedicated to Persephone, Queen of the Dead.
Parsley can also be used as a tonic to clear the complexion. To do this, steep the parsley in boiling water for twenty minutes before you strain it. It's also very rich in iron.
Parsley is also associated with love, protection, and purification. It does very well with cleansing baths.
