Mentha oil futures extended gains for the third straight day by adding Rs 14.40 to Rs 1,138.40 a kg on Thursday as speculators enlarged their positions, driven by increased demand in the spot market.

At the Multi Commodity Exchange, mentha oil for delivery in February rose by Rs 14.40, or 1.28 per cent, to Rs 1,138.40 a kg, with a trade volume of just one lot.
