Mentha oil prices rose further by Rs 8.10 to Rs 1,336.50 per kg in futures trade today, largely on the back of domestic as well as exports demand amid reports of lower output this season.
The sentiment improved further as traders engaged in creating positions on account of good demand from consuming industries and lower arrivals from Chandausi in Uttar Pradesh.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, mentha oil for delivery in February edged higher by Rs 8.10, or 0.60 per cent, to Rs 1,336.50 per kg, clocking a business volume of 200 lots.
