Gui Zhi Tang by Blue Poppy’s Great Nature Classics is a formula that comes from Zhang Zhong-jings late Han dynasty Shang Han Lun (Treatise on Damage [Due to] Cold).

Within this formula, Gui Zhi resolves the exterior and scatters cold, while Bai Shao nourishes the blood and constrains yin. Together, one dispels wind evils from the exterior and the other supplements the constructive qi.

Sheng Jiang aids Gui Zhi in resolving the exterior. However it also warms the middle and harmonizes the stomach.

Da Zao assists Bai Shao in nourishing and harmonizing the constructive and blood. Mix-fried Gan Cao harmonizes all the other ingredients in the formula as well as promotes the interaction of yin and yang when combined with the foregoing medicinals.
