Mentha oil rose by Rs 20.20 to Rs 1,410.50 per kg in futures trade today on traders creating positions on account of good demand from consuming industries and lower arrivals from producing areas.
Sentiment improved further due to increased domestic as well as exports demand in the midst of reports of lower output this season.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, mentha oil for delivery in December rose by Rs 20.20, or 1.45 per cent, to Rs 1,410.50 per kg, clocking a business volume of 1,879 lots.
