Oil scent stain on dining table

Hi, Sadly I spilled some scented oil on my dining table and it now has a horrible dark stain. Any suggestion how I can get rid of it?

See image for reference.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums.

Any idea what finish, if any, is on the table? Without knowing, I would start with mineral spirits.

Mineral spirits would also be my first choice. It shouldn't be too difficult to remove the stain if it's on top of the finish but it almost looks like it's soaked thru it
