search format

This forum is very informative with bits of knowledge and experiences dribbled throughout posts... however when ready to order & you search say for example 'chamomile', you don't get any of the forum information on what has worked for others, blending ratios, 'this works well with:' etc...

especially some of the meatier posts by eric, sue, merlin... you have to spend hours sifting through each topic and thread and post etc... not that this isn't enjoyable however it would be more efficient if there were a way to search WITHIN the FORUM

some days I read some helpful tidbit that is downright amazing and I never seem to find it again

just a thought ~ love the forum & thanks to those who've helped :D

Hi Rachel,

I THINK you're asking just to search within the forums, in which case you simply click the "search" button on the top yellow toolbar. This is a forum search only.

Let us know if we can help you further!

All the Best,
Eric

oh I am so sorry! didn't see this yellow button before thank you!
I always seem to search from the main page and it doesn't get you to the forum info

however, when searching chamomile here is the message I get:

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: chamomile.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 18 characters excluding wildcards.

please advise what I'm dong wrong here and thank you again Eric
