I always use a lubricant as well. Through the years I’ve used a soap bar, beeswax and others, but lately I found a product called Screw Wax that comes in a tin and works well. What I like about it versus other commercial products I’ve tried is that it doesn’t stain the wood. FastCap makes a similar product that does a good job of lubricating the threads, but soaks in and darkens the wood.

You can find the Screw Wax product lots of places.
