It seems some herbs can confuse a vampire's sense of smell. John tells Dean to toss saffron, skunk's cabbage and trillium onto the fire to block their scent and also the scent of the vampire they captured from the other vampires in her nest. He also tells him to dust their clothes with the ashes to stand a chance of not being detected. The brothers use this tactic again in [[3.07 Fresh Blood]], when they are trying to hide from Gordon.
