The formula book, He Ji Ju Fang" was edited by the office of "He Ji Ju" of the Song Dynasty (960-1279). He Ji Ju was an official agency that oversaw the management and business of herbs and herbal formulae during that time. Later, during the year of Shaoxing ( A.D. 1136－1141) of later Southern Song, the name of the agency was changed to "Tai Ping Hui Min Ju, 太平惠民局" meaning "office of peaceful benefiting the people". Thereafter the book has been known as "Tai Ping Hui Min He Ji Ju Fang". Fang means formulae. Now, there are ten volumes in existence, and there are three volumes of appendices on general instruction. There are 788 formulae listed in the book.
