Removing gel stain


I recently had a window replaced with a door in my 1910 farmhouse. I even had to have the molding wood custom cut to match the existing belly-band moldings. I created several tests of the stain I wanted to use to match the existing finish. The wood is (mostly) fir and the stain is an oil-based gel by General Finishes. The problem is that despite carefully conditioning the wood with about 1-1.25 lb cut of shellac the stain is way darker than the wood finish I had hope to achieve.  I would like to strip it back as much as possible and start over (I realize the stain will not be 100% gone) but cannot seem to find good info on what product to use. Since it is a complex molding I don't want to sand unless I have no other choice. I was hoping to use something low odor since it is inside the house and I have pets who may be affected by fumes. Would Citristrip or one of the Peelaway products be an option? TIA
