EG700 fretboard turned dark w/ lemon oil

I cleaned my fretboard w/ alcohol then applied lemon oil but it turned very dark. Is this normal? My newer guitars have rosewood too but they didn't turn dark.

I don't recommend putting IPA on a rosewood fingerboard


lemon oil should make it turn darker; always did when I used it
