Blend description:

The Cinnamon Caress tincture is based on Gui Zhi Tang, a blend used in traditional Chinese medicine.050

Traditional Zhang Zhong Jing mixture, which mainly deals with the Tai Yang layer, acute attack of Feng Han (cold wind, where wind is a dominant pathogen). Thanks to the cinnamon twigs it is very warm and suitable especially for autumn and winter. Thanks to the combination of cinnamon and peony, the mixture can harmonise Wei Qi (defensive Qi) and Ying Qi (nourishing Qi). We could also say that it will balance Yin and Yang. Disharmony in the Wei and Ying layers can cause many problems, so this mixture is quite widely used.

Effects according to Chinese medicine:

  • harmonises Yin and Yang
  • harmonises Ying Qi and Wei Qi
  • relaxes the superficial and muscle layers
  • harmonises the central emitter
  • the invasion of Feng Han (windy cold) into the weakened surface layer
  • removes Feng Han (cold pathogen) from the muscle layer
  • regulates sweating

Mixture author: Zhang Zhong Jing in Shan Han Lun (but he also took over the mixture from older authors, he only modified it into 206 recipes). 

Clinical notes:

Avoid cold, raw, spicy, fatty foods during use


  • conditions of Feng Re (windy heat)
  • not suitable for patients who consume alcohol regularly
  • rice mash was always served after GUI ZHI TANG
