I read an article by Chris Schwarz that claims vegetable based oils are best for tools. I’m sure he speaks from personal research and experience. I’d guess about any cooking oil or shortening would work.
I personally just use a rag lightly moistened with machine oil. Synthetic motor oil should work too.
