Personally, I wouldn't recommend putting any oils/lubricants on your strings. What you may want to try out is to place the guitar in a room with a higher humidity, this could be a quick fix if this is what has caused the problem.
What strings are you using if you don't mind me asking?
- Walnut Whip
Strings are supposed to be dry.
Oil is going to cause excessive buildup of dirt and grime and anything water based is going to lead to oxidation.
It sounds like the strings are just rough. Did you switch to a new brand or line? Steels typically feel more course than nickel coated and nickel coated feel rougher than polymer coated.
GHS Fast Fret?
Not necessary a lubricant, but after cleaning the strings/fretboard, the strings feel more slippery.
Fast Fret is an oil based lubricant with alcohol added to clean.
For the longest time I thought its main purpose was cleaning haha
