Xue Fu Zhu Yu Pian is composed of 11 medicinal herbs. It is essentially a combination of Si Ni San (Frigid Extremities Powder) and Tao Hong Si Wu Tang (Four-Substance with Safflower and Peach Pit Decoction).
The chief herbs of this formula are substances which profoundly invigorate blood and relieve pain: Tao Ren (Peach seed), Hong Hua (Safflower) and Chuan Xiong (Sichuan Lovage root). These herbs improve circulation and stop pain, particularly in the upper body. Deputy herbs Dang Gui (Angelica Sinensis) and Chi Shao (Red Peony root) also invigorate blood and alleviate pain, but their action is strongest in the lower body. Similarly, Niu Xi (Achyranthes) encourages the downward movement of blood. Niu Xi is a potent blood-mover and is renowned for its use in gynecological disorders such as dysmenorrhea. In such cases, Niu Xi is often combined with Dang Gui and Tao Ren, as it is here. Dang Gui has been studied for its effect on contraction and relaxation of the smooth muscle of the uterus.
Sheng Di Huang (Rehmanniae root) cools the blood and clears heat and works with Dang Gui to protect the body's Yin and nourish the blood. Chai Hu (Bupleurum) is a flag-ship medicinal herb for regulating Liver Qi. Here, it is used in combination with Jie Geng (Platycodon root) and Zhi Qiao (Bitter Orange) to relieve constraint in the chest and promote the free movement of Qi, which of course promotes the free movement of blood. The use of Chai Hu (which has an up-bearing nature) with Nui Xi (which has a down-bearing nature) helps this formula to restore proper balance and movement of Qi and blood throughout the body.
Gan Cao (Licorice root) harmonizes the actions of the other 10 herbs.
