Removal of olive oil stain from leather boots

Please help! Can anyone recommend what to use to get an olive oil stain off of some soft tan leather boots?

I'd start with Saddle Soap, available at most good shoe stores. Follow lable directions.

To remove small oil stains from leather, rub corn starch briskly into the stain with your fingers until the heat from the friction is felt. The friction heat will loosen oil and allow the corn starch to absorb the oil. Repeat until stain is gone. Any remaining oil tends to eventually disappear as it absorbs deeper into leather.
