I know that I can use mineral oil on my soapstone to age, or give a nice patina to my soapstone, but how do I remove the excess mineral oil from the surface of the stone?

You can use denatured alcohol or acetone but the preferred choice would be to not use so much mineral oil that you would have to do this. Ideally, if you use a clean rag or good quality paper towel after the application and rub, rub, rub, any little bit of excess should be removed.
