“It looks like a lit­tle Dick­ens vil­lage when it snows here,” Jen says about own­ing a busi­ness on Payson’s His­toric Main Street. Jen and her hus­band Jon are the own­ers of North Apothe­cary, the new day spa in down­town Payson. She loves that in Payson, the peo­ple all know each other. Her clients al­ways leave her feel­ing like she has a new fam­ily mem­ber. “I know them all, their fam­ily, what they are all about and what they like to do,” she said.

North Apothe­cary is a full-ser­vice day spa offering fa­cials, mas­sages, lash ex­ten­sions, man­i­cures, pedi­cures and more. They have their own or­ganic skin care line and have hand­made jew­elry for sale from lo­cal artists and sil­ver­smiths. Ev­ery day of the week, the owner Jen, along with other li­censed in­struc­tors, teaches Yoga classes of up to a dozen peo­ple.

The day spa of­fers a trendy new ser­vice called “sug­ar­ing.” Sug­ar­ing is a new, gen­tler way to re­move un­wanted hair. “It’s a paste sim­i­lar to wax, but be­cause it’s only made of sugar, wa­ter and lemon, it doesn’t ir­ri­tate your skin, dam­age your skin cells and only ad­heres to your hair fol­li­cles, leav­ing your skin feel­ing soft and hair-free,” Jen said. Watch a video at Lo­calChed­ to see a demonstration of sug­ar­ing and the many ben­e­fits of this nat­u­ral and or­ganic process.

Lo­cal cus­tomer Brit­tany boasts about the new day spa. “I love this place. I went in for sug­ar­ing hair re­moval for my eye­brows and up­per lip. I loved the shape my eye­brows came out and com­pared to wax­ing it was gen­tle and did not leave my skin red. This was my first time with sug­ar­ing. I will never go back to wax­ing! Jen shaped my eye­brows won­der­fully. Thanks for com­ing to Payson,” Brit­tany said.

What sets this day spa apart is they use only or­ganic prod­ucts. “Or­ganic mean­ing we are very, very par­tic­u­lar to what in­gre­di­ents go into our prod­ucts. Our nail pol­ish has no toxic chem­i­cals. Ev­ery­thing we use is nat­u­ral,” Jen said. “We put money into our ser­vices and prod­ucts we of­fer and we take time to do it right.” They never want to rush you and want each and ev­ery client to have the best time. “When you come [to North Apothe­cary], you are wel­comed to take a mo­ment for your­self, read a mag­a­zine, enjoy a cup of tea and pam­per your­self,” she said. They make this easy with their long list of greatly priced, qual­ity ser­vices.

“Fa­cials are my fa­vorite treat­ment and they are very un­der­val­ued,” Jen said. Her fa­vorite fa­cial in­cludes an hour-long lux­u­ri­ous treat­ment in­clud­ing a peel, long face and body mas­sage, plus two cleans­ing masks. But most peo­ple come in for the in­cred­i­ble deal they have on mani/ pedi treat­ments. For $35, you get an or­ganic treat­ment with no harsh chem­i­cals, ex­tended mas­sage and real at­ten­tion to de­tail. Be­cause they only use the best or­ganic and nat­u­ral prod­ucts, your freshly pol­ished nails ac­tu­ally last longer.

“Booked a mani/pedi to­day and it was great. So much more re­lax­ing and invit­ing than any nail salon I’ve been to and the price was very rea­son­able. No smelly chem­i­cals and the staff was so friendly. En­joyed the or­ganic prod­ucts, color choices and the con­ver­sa­tion,” said Shes­sann, a Payson res­i­dent.

Fam­ily and small-town charm were the main rea­sons for re­lo­cat­ing to Utah. Orig­i­nally from Los An­ge­les, Jon and Jen wanted a place where they could open up a bou­tique shop and run a busi­ness at their own pace. Jen loves that she can choose prod­ucts and ser­vices that she really likes and that add value and qual­ity to her small busi­ness.

Bring­ing in qual­ity was not only im­por­tant in the prod­ucts and ser­vices she of­fers, but also in her team. Jen’s fo­cus and time is put to­ward teach­ing yoga, sug­ar­ing and fa­cials. So when look­ing to cover all the ser­vices they of­fer, she chose a great team of mas­ter es­theti­cians. “Mas­ter es­theti­cians are li­censed to do ev­ery­thing we of­fer. So when you come in, any­one here can give you a great ex­pe­ri­ence with any­thing we of­fer,” she said.

North Apothe­cary is a new day spa in Payson’s down­town his­toric dis­trict that of­fers a va­ri­ety of ser­vices in­clud­ing fa­cials, mas­sages, lash ex­ten­sions, man­i­cures, pedi­cures and “sug­ar­ing,” a method of re­mov­ing un­wanted hair.
