    Make a paste of water and baking soda, let it dry over the oil, it will absorb the oil and then brush off the dried paste. Good luck!

    You can try oven cleaner, you'll be surprised at how good that works for cleaning. If your paint is high quality and of good condition you should not have a problem with it. Good luck.

    To remove essential oil spots from a wall, you can try the following steps:


    1. First, try using a dry cloth or a paper towel to blot the spots to absorb as much of the oil as possible.
    2. If the spots are still visible, you can try using a small amount of rubbing alcohol or white vinegar to help lift the oil. Dampen a cloth or a cotton swab with alcohol or vinegar and gently rub the spots until they are removed.
    3. If the alcohol or vinegar does not work, you may need to use a stronger cleaning solution, such as a grease-cutting dish soap or a commercial wall cleaner. Dampen a cloth or a cotton swab with the cleaning solution and gently rub the spots until they are removed.
    4. Once the spots are removed, rinse the area with a damp cloth and dry it thoroughly to remove any remaining cleaning solution or residue.


    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
