Default O rings squeaking in Hot faucet

Faucet installed perhaps six months or so ago developed a squeaking noise from o ring friction in mechanism. I have taken it apart and noted two good o rings on the assembly. upon reinstall it was quiet for a few days without adding anything to them. Question is what is suggested method for stopping squeak from the friction. I imagine anything not suited for consumption in this area would be out of the question. Perhaps a vegetable oil or olive oil?

Thanks for the information. Being a single, female I don't know a lot of this valuable information. It took me 3 trips to the supply house and they gave me some verbal instructions. I am looking for anything about plumbing boston. Any takers?
