If you're looking for individual treatments that are widely used the first that come to mind are arnica, belladonna, chamomile, and pulsatilla.

However keep in mind that homeopathic medicine is not like western medicine, the treatments are not based solely on the symptoms one has but also the disposition of the person. For example if you have a cut and you feel warm and like to be covered you would try calendula and it would be right for that situation. However two weeks later you could have another cut but this time you are cold and dislike being covered ledum would be more appropriate to try.

All this is to say that stocking up is all well and good but depending on the behavior the treatment may change so frequently that stock up shopping is unwise.

As far as nontraditional homeopathics go (like premixed combo tablets) Calms Forte for kids is good, so is Bach's RR, and hylands teething tablets.
