Bupleurum unsticks what is stuck.

One of the cardinal signs for Xiao Yao or Jia Wei Xiao Yao is when a person gets really angry, really suddenly over something that in reality is very small. In other words, we keep something bottled up until a little thing “sets us off”. Most of the time we use Jia Wei Xiao Yao because it clears more heat than Xiao Yao. And anger often translates as heat.

“Jia Wei” means “added ingredients (lit:flavors) and so Jia Wei is Xiao Yao with those two extra ingredients. Jia Wei Xiao Yao is Rambling Powder (Xiao Yao San) plus two herbs to “cool the blood”.

This formula also contains some Dang Gui and Bai Shao which build the blood. For that reason women especially gravitate to Jia Wei and regular Xiao Yao Wan. (Because in Chinese Medicine, women are all about the blood.)
