(at around 7 mins) After Arthur takes a deep smell of the cloth and awakens he asks "what is that!". Merlin tells him "a combination of hogwort and valerian". Hogwort contains Croton oil which is caustic, causing irritation and pain even to the point of blisters in high enough concentrations and would keep someone awake due to the resulting discomfort if inhaled. St John's Wort however is used to induce sleep, as is valerian, and could in high enough concentrations (and with a bit of magick) be used to knock someone out in order to kidnap them; something that any warlock like Merlin would know.

Arthur: I'm the one you want, Cenred. Let them go.
Cenred: You are right. That would only be fair. But fair's for fools. Take them away!
