NEW DELHI, Sept 23 (Commoditiescontrol) - Mentha oil gained for the second consecutive day on Thursday, with prices further improved by Rs 10 per kg in the major mandis of western Uttar Pradesh, after remaining sluggish for last several days, due to the rise in demand at lower prices. According to traders, demand from processing units at lower prices amid weak arrivals in the mandis mainly supported the commodity. Mentha oil contracts are also showing an increase in futures trading, with a 1.5 per cent rise in the November contract indicates a rise in prices in the coming months.

According to trade sources, due to the fall in prices, the arrival of mentha oil in the mandis of major producing regions is decreasing continuously.
