Hey Nicole, I'm a fourth year medical student. Febreeze is absolutely not effective for getting rid of the oil. You don't necessarily have to get it professionally cleaned, but at least, you should get a rug doctor or something with an upholstery attachment, get a deep cleaning solution and clean clean clean your couch. You can always test a portion of the couch to test for colorfastness, and to top it off, I would use Febreeze (the allergen reducer kind) which has been shown to decrease air born particles, and might help to decrease the spread of the rash.
Good luck!
