Other oils to protect steel

I play an Array Mbira. The tines are made of spring steel. I have sweaty hands, so the tines tend to rust unless I coat them with oil. The folks who make the instrument recommend 3-In-One Oil, which is what I've been using. Does it contain anything toxic? Are there other oils I could use to protect the tines? [more inside]

you know, the mercurochrome song, the french one, with kalimba ...

Heard a catchy as-all-get-out song on CJBC-FM Espace musique early this afternoon. All I remember:
  • In French
  • Female singer
  • Had kalimba/mbira featured pretty heavily
  • Had "mercurochrome" and perhaps "petit pansement" in the lyrics.
Anyone able to ID it, please?
