You can buy concrete form oil at any concrete supply house.  The stuff 
I've used before smells like diesel.  I've known contractors who just 
buy diesel at the gas station for their form oil.  You can also use 
vegetable oil or mineral oil if you want to do it green.  For small 
forms under 12" high, I usually don't bother with anything.  I've never 
had a problem removing the forms.  On anything larger, I'd use some type 
of oil to make it easier to get the forms off.
