“I have been given this product, Legato as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “
Fibro Pain vs. Passion
I recently wrote about the effects of fibromyalgia pain on our personal love lives.
Fatigue, brain fog, muscle pain and soreness, weight gain, and depression are just a few of the “friends” of fibromyalgia pain that make passion seem like a word forever gone from our vocabulary.
I can’t blame all the problem on fibromyalgia pain, though that is certainly enough of an issue. I think that age and menopause have something to do with the problem as well. And due to a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), I am not able to use hormone therapy to improve the situation.
My husband and I had become quite frustrated because of my lack of libido and the pain I was experiencing. The times that we did try to make love ended up being more like work than pleasure. There didn’t really seem to be much pleasure in it for either of us though we desired greatly to show our affection to one another.
Legatto For Women
When Chronic Illness Bloggers contacted me about trying this product from Resonant Botanicals called Legatto, I thought this might be the answer to some of our issues. The product uses all organic oils, all of which I was familiar with. I have heard that many of these oils were used as an aphrodisiac.
Imagine decadent rich organic oils such as Grape Seed, Hemp Oil, Jojoba Oil and Argan Oil as well as Shea Oil generously infused with herbs that will warm your heart and allow you to receive and give all the joys of intimacy with your partner.
Music and Love Go Together
Being a musician, I was also attracted to the product because of the company’s musical theme. That really has nothing to do with the quality or usefulness of the product. It just drew me to it. After all, isn’t a love song an aphrodisiac also?
Here’s an excerpt from their website introducing their business.
The story of Resonant Botanicals begins with music. From my earliest memories, music has always featured prominently in the life of my family. Most of our family gatherings found my father playing his guitar or mandolin and my siblings playing their band instruments in joyful living room concerts. Throughout my life this deep love of music continued to grow and in my teens I began a crazy journey as a professional musician.
Like King Solomon’s bride sang of her love in the Song of Songs,
For your love is better than wine; your anointing oils are fragrant; your name is oil poured out. 1:2
Thirdly, I was impressed that Resonant Botanicals was in the business to help others. Their desire is to offer a way for patients to get off of opioids (pain medications) and help those with anxiety issues. Anyone who has had success using their products can help Resonant Botanicals in providing a bottle of these lotions to others in need.
When I received the bottle of lotion, I immediately opened it to discover what it smelled like. I’ve used some essential oils for my pain that while they may have been helpful, the smell was not enjoyable for me nor anyone around me.
I found the smell very pleasing and gentle… Smooth comes to mind which is what the term “legato” actually means.
In music performance and notation, legato [leˈɡaːto] (Italian for “tied together”) indicates that musical notes are played or sung smoothly and connected.
I believe “smooth and connected” might be just what one wants to experience in a great lovemaking experience. And I like that Italian definition of “tied together”. Isn’t that the goal of lovemaking? To become one, or tied together. If this lotion will do that for a couple, any price would be worth it.
However, the price is very competitive at $20 for 5 oz. Other lotions and oils on the market seem to run at about the same cost.
As for actually using it…
I always love a good massage. The oil did seem to give a bit of cushion and I didn’t feel pain from his touch which would stand the reason that we were able to continue. We were also able to come to a complete climax each time. It was no Fourth of July fireworks, but more of a “smooth and connected” satisfaction.
I would say that it is definitely worth the try if you are having issues. Or just for the fun of it. It would be great aid just for massaging the body.

Writer/Speaker sharing about how to make it through anything. I married a pastor with two boys who just lost their mom, I homeschooled my own children, led children’s ministries and women’s ministries in the church, and founded and led a homeschool support group. Had to give up much of this due to chronic pain. Like the Insurance, I know a lot because I’ve seen a lot.
