Jump to: Reviews | That's the Spirit! Captain Bonnie Barnacles: In an era when most women were relegated to sitting at home by the fire knitting children to help with chores, Bonnie Barnacles dreamt of more. Stowing away on the S.S. Anti-Authority in 1778, she quickly organized a mutiny, dazzling her crusty shipmates with her cutlass juggling and partial memorization of the alphabet. Today, she and her forsaken crew still haunt the harbor, turning a pretty pence with their home jewelry-making workshops and inspirational cassettes.

Apothecary Wellness Spa's service menu may be long and diverse, but every treatment has one thing in common: holistic, eco-friendly products and techniques that calm the mind and reveal beauty naturally. Facials rely on formulas from Naturopathica and Ilike Organic Skincare to purify and revitalize complexions through fully personalized treatments, each of which include soothing massages and a bounty of hot towels. Custom-massage sessions benefit from the addition of individually blended essential oils, and body treatments soften the skin by imparting essences of wholesome fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Even the waxing treatments take a natural approach by using Nufree, a plant-based, hair-removal formula that's naturally antibacterial and free of waxes and sugars, resulting in less skin irritation than the hard waxes or recently-lit birthday candles used by other spas.
