Temple of Beauty

by Emily Barth Isler

A new facial launches at Calamigos Guest Ranch in Malibu.

There are facials, and then there are holistic, luxurious, and downright spiritual facials, the latest of which is Odacité Beauty’s new Temple of Beauty Facial. This treatment debuted at the incredibly chic and posh Calamigos Guest Ranch and Beach Club in Malibu, California, and includes bespoke, ritual-based treatments created by the French-Californian brand. Since Odacité founder Valerie Grandury designed the Temple of Beauty to not only nurture the skin but to soothe the mind and elevate the spirit, it begins with aromatherapy, which is customized depending on the time of day and the individual needs of the client.

From there, the spa ritual brings together healing modalities such as Ancestral Medicine, Crystal Energy and Botanical Powers, to create a truly elevated experience. A customized mask follows anything-but-basic cleansing, then the fruit acids and enzymes of Odacité’s new Bioactive Rose Gommage exfoliating treatment pave the way for the showstopper, Gua Sha. With a choice of energetically charged crystal tools and GMO-free, natural Serum Concentrates and the All-Embracing Serum, this Chinese Medicine technique lifts, de-puffs, contours and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.

The birthplace of the facial, Calamigos Guest Ranch and Beach Club, is a dream getaway, with a timeless feel and sense of absolute peace and serenity secluded in the hills of Southern California. Whether you enjoy tranquility near the tucked-away spa pool and hot tub or seek out the more jovial atmosphere of the main pool, there are plenty of cabanas where you can find your zen. There are plenty of hikes and vistas to be found on the 250-acre ranch, or a shuttle can deliver you to the gorgeous, private Beach Club and restaurant on the Pacific Ocean.

But in case you can’t get to Malibu, the Temple of Beauty Facial is traveling the world. It has recently also launched at the new Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos, and will soon be available at La Sivolière, a 5-star hotel in the French ski resort Courchevel, and then opening at Le Fouquet’s Spa in Paris.

Wherever you catch the Temple of Beauty, you will find a bit of California and a bit of Paris rolled into its medicinal herbs, cocktailed vitamins and antioxidants, and vibrational essential oils.
