On any light colored wood I always use a color conditioner first. You never know when this can happen and a small sample may not show the blotch as good as a large sheet.

On the bright side, this will likely go away in a couple days. Good thing it was only oil and not stain.

With oil I never let it sit thick on the work. I apply and wipe off right away. leaving the oil on does nothing, whatever oil is on it sank in right away and more will only saturate the looser fibers on top. Give it a good pre color conditioner like Charles Neil and several applications of oil wiping excess off right away.
