Blood on saddle seat

Hey guys! this is my first post. I have a devoucoux english saddle and 2 days ago i got my period while riding and got a stain on the seat. It doesnt really bother me to much since it is my saddle but i was wondering if anyone has any advice for making the stain less obvious? I oiled it the next day and the seat got darker but the stain is kind of shiny and is still noticeable. If anyone has any advice or suggestions please let me know!!!

If the pic I found is similar, the saddle is a darker color? Rather than oiling try using a standard leather cleaner. It may not take the stain out completely but eventually the stain will wear away or fade to the point it isn't noticeable.

Try using Horseman;s One Step or just Murphy's Oil want a leather cleaner. Simple glycerin based saddle soap would be a good choice as well.

I'd just clean it with some saddle soap and water on a rag. Really rub that spot. I always used to see the dye from my jeans come off on the rag when I would clean my saddle. I hope you got it while it was fresh!
