The History of Genies
As for that wish-granting genie, John Bardenelli offers a delightful history of The Origin of the Genie in the Lamp.
Apparently, he tells us, “Genies, or jinn as the Arabic word is Romanized, come from a long line of mythological creatures dating back to 2400 BC.” They weren’t always particularly helpful or even nice. The friendly version that has become popularized today is based on legends from Palmyra, where Bardenelli tells us, a “gny” was seen as something of a guardian angel.
“The Latin word genii refers to these benevolent attending spirits, not their sinister cousins,” he goes on to say. “The singular form of genii is genius, which is certainly a familiar word to all the lovely folks reading this article. Back in the day, people who were intelligent, creative and talented attributed those qualities to their genius, their guardian spirit.”
And, of course, nourishing your skin with a natural sugar facial scrub from your favorite online sugar scrub store, will be an act of pure genius!
