Smooth Rod Lubrication

What lubrication is used for the Smooth and Screw rods?  I bought my printers 3 years ago and I went to look for the lube, but couldn't locate it.  I looked on the Prusa website, but they don't sell it or at least I couldn't find it.

IIRC, they say to NOT lubricate the 'trapezoidal' screw rods, but to put a drop of lightweight machine oil on the smooth rods every so often and rub some Prusa Grease (I use Superlube) on them every so many so oftens.
