Easy way to measure pH of oil ?

it's not strictly "molecular biology" but here we go: I have turpentine 
solved in linseed oil. For further use I have to neutralize the pH. Is 
there any easy way to do that? Lackmus paper doesn't work - I suspect 
because of physical reasons (though I am not sure of that by any means, I 
am no chemist). I would rather not risk the life of our pH-meters electrode 
and the wrath of my boss :-)  So, any idea?
